Samuel Entwisle (1803-30)

Samuel Entwisle was the son of the noted Wesleyan minister Joseph Entwisle. He was educated at Kingswood School between 1813 and 1817 and became a local preacher in 1827. Entwisle followed his father and brothers William and Joseph junior into the itinerancy in 1830 and was stationed in the Dudley circuit. His ministry had lasted just twelve weeks when his health broke down and he died at his father's house in Bath on June 21 1830.
